“They come at you at five hundred miles per hour. That’s how it starts…”
Near the end of a long spring tourist season, an exhausted Jack Cort meets his next group for four jam-packed days in the Big Apple. Hoping this “combo” of visitors from Seattle and rural Georgia will be like any other, he watches with panic as the trip rapidly spins out of control.
From hostility in Little Italy and a miscommunication at Grand Central to a disturbing discovery in Times Square and physical blows in a downtown cemetery, Jack will come to learn that the baggage these people brought from home wasn’t limited to what they packed.
From the award-winning author of Suspension, comes a wholly original comic novel. Join these 35 sightseers on the bustling sidewalks of New York City as they try their best to meet the challenge of our modern world—interacting constantly, and much too quickly, with people they only partially understand.
